Love Came Down In Flesh

I am posting the message below on both of my blogs for Christmas.  I pray it blesses all who read it and pursue the Scriptures and references therein.  I believe it will cause your faith and discernment of the Lord’s body to soar.

 

 From personal experience I know how illness at Christmas is a terrible stressor for the entire families of those under attack of disease. I share in my book, Slam the Door on Cancer, my own saga of a late Christmas Eve discharge from a hospital four hours away from home.

However, IF we who believe God (not just believe IN Him but believe His Word) look past the often tedious festivities of Christmas in the world, we can see the ultimate healing and health that Christ’s birth brought over two-thousand years ago. All of us can be blessed by getting off the holiday treadmill and spending time contemplating how that first glorious Christmas began the process we can all embrace–rebirth through the Lord’s resurrection we celebrate at another holy holiday–Easter.

We know that our Lord’s passion before and during His time on that cross as well as the willingness and obedience with which He poured out His precious blood IS God’s grace–God’s love poured out to heal and save us once and for all. We know that Jesus’s birth came in the “fullness of time” when the world was upside down. The Roman Empire was cruelly terroristic and ruled its victims by fear. The ancient Jewish covenant had been corrupted by Jewish leaders–Pharisees, Sadducees, and Scribes–all colluding with the Romans. The enemy who tempted the first man had a grip on the dominion over all the earth. Certainly the “law of Moses” and the animal sacrifices had proven to be past their useful time.

We think the world is tough now, but because of the first Christmas and the first Easter, it is not lost in helplessness and despair as it was when the curse of Eden was still “legal”. Jesus, Himself, called satan “the prince of this world” and he was until God took on flesh putting the perfect plan of redemption in place. God IS love and LOVE came down to that dark dark world. And Jesus did everything needed to reverse the curse and restore God’s Kingdom on Earth as in Heaven. Our participation in this Kingdom is up to us because God gives us freedom to choose being either OF the world or OF His Kingdom but not both. Col 1:13,14 (The Voice Translation) says, “You have rescued us from dark powers and brought us safely into the kingdom of your Son , whom you love and in whom we are redeemed and forgiven of our sins (through His blood).

it-is-finished-1313416-639x424The above scripture speaks of salvation and I recently learned that every single time salvation is referenced in New Testament the Greek word “sozo” is used which means “wholeness of body, soul, and spirit”. We know as Isaiah 53:5 clearly teaches (when the original language is studied) that Jesus procured our physical healing by the stripes He took on His back by the Roman “cat of nine tails” and we know He reversed the curse that held us captive to guilt and sin consciousness–even a religious spirit from Galatians 3:13 (The Voice Translation) “the Anointed One, the Liberating King, has redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. It was stated in the Scriptures, ‘Everyone who hangs on a tree is cursed by God’.”

While, from a worldly perspective, facing down an enemy attack on our body or soul at Christmas is exponentially more difficult, we can draw from the Word of God in a more poignant way at Christmas. This child born while angels sing gloriously to humble shepherds. This child born of a virgin came to this earth for the very purpose of dying–of going obediently to the cross so that He, as the once and for all perfect sacrificial lamb, took all our sin and disease while we received His righteousness . It was God’s plan of redemption–of healing and wholeness of our bodies, souls, and spirits and the blessing of freedom from the oppression of the principles of the enemy carried out principally through power mongers and predator religious sects…..free from animal sacrifices that only bought temporary redemption. We are reminded at Christmas that LOVE CAME DOWN once and for all to give power to the powerless and oppressed.

Sickness is a curse and certainly it is oppression. Cancer is perhaps the most aggressive instrument the enemy of our souls can wield even to those who accept Christ the Savior. Why is that? Because so many strong believers have not come to realize that God loves them unconditionally or that salvation by God’s grace through faith is a powerful means of physical healing. Great authority comes to us as we choose to be “in the world but not of the world”. (This is a good time to read John 17) We have God-given authority to persistently command tumors out of our bodies in the mighty name of Jesus of Nazareth–the name above all names. We can do this with confidence if we embrace the truth that God ALWAYS wants His children living in physical health. We wear Jesus’s righteousness by God’s grace. We cannot earn this blessing—Jesus earned it for us.

it-is-finished-1313416-639x424Many Christians struggle to believe God loves them in spite of their shortcomings. God the Father endured allowing His ONLY beloved Son to go all the way through the passion of the cross taking EVERY sin and disease (see Deut 28) to that cross with Him. He declared His mission “finished”……our enemy’s dominion on earth was finished. This enemy still steals, lies, and attacks but he has no legal right to do so unless we take his accusations to heart and allow him to steal our faith in God’s Word. Our healing is assured in God’s Word–all through God’s Word. (see John 10:10) That Word expresses God’s intent. When the words we speak aloud over our bodies matches God’s Word, our intent lines up with His. What could be more powerful? Speak Health!

I recommend you read Annette Capps’ small but important book, Quantum Faith, to give you empowering Scriptural insights.

Is It Always God’s Will to Heal Us?

Readers,

I apologize for not posting for a while.  We have been doing some long needed maintenance to the web site and I’ve had to do some unanticipated traveling.  But, in this post, I want to share a teaching from my own most encouraging pastor–Joseph Prince. You can subscribe to these daily devotionals at www.josephprince.com.   Each one is as powerful and applicable as this one.  All are rooted deeply in God’s grace and His word.   From Pastor Prince today:

In the world folks think "seeing is believing".  In the Kingdom of God, "believing is seeing."    We get past believing and rest in KNOWING He is faithful.

In the world folks think “seeing is believing”. In the Kingdom of God, “believing is seeing.” We get past believing and rest in KNOWING He is faithful.

John 14:7
If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

“Someone once told me that just because you ask God for something, it does not mean that He will give it to you. Quoting 1 John 5:14–15, he said that we first have to ask according to His will before He hears and gives us what we ask of Him.

Of course, we do not ask for things that are against God’s will or Word. But what is normally implied in the earlier statement is that we don’t always know what God’s will for us is—“what will be, will be”. But didn’t Jesus say, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father”? (John 14:9) This means that if you want to know what the Father’s will, mind, heart or attitude toward you and your family is, just look at Jesus in the Gospel stories.

So if your child is sick, is it God’s will to heal him? Well, look at Jesus and see how He ministered to children who were sick—the Syro-Phoenician’s daughter who was demon-possessed (Mark 7:24–30), Jairus’ daughter who was dead (Mark 5:22–24, 35–43), and the widow of Nain’s only son who had died and was about to be buried. (Luke 7:12–15) Jesus cast out the demon. He raised the dead. He healed them all!

Beloved, don’t say, “We can never know God’s will. Sometimes He heals, sometimes He doesn’t. He may bless us, but He may also take away our blessings.” The Jesus of the Bible never made anyone sick. He never made anyone poor. He made the little become much with 12 baskets full of leftovers. (Matthew 14:20) He gave a net-breaking, boat-sinking load of fish to fishermen. (Luke 5:6–7)

My friend, the Jesus of the Bible loves to heal, deliver, prosper and save people. This Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) And He says to you today, “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” So you can know God’s will for you. You can see what He will do for you when you know the Jesus of the Bible and what He did.”

I urge you to visit www.josephprince.com if you want to move from hoping to knowing your future is bright in Christ.

An Amazing Dose of Hope

Occasionally I am strongly compelled to share with you a teaching from Pastor Joseph Prince (www.josephprince.com ).   Throughout my awakening and healing I’ve been led to several good Christian teachers each of whom seem to have taken me a bit higher in my faith level.  Joseph Prince somehow came across my spiritual radar screen this year and his teaching as given my own faith a quantum leap–literally.   I suggest you consider subscribing to his daily devotionals of which the following is one.   His teaching always encompasses wisdom regarding physical healing.  I believe you will be blessed and your faith with soar from the foundation of hope it offers.   

Ruth 4:15

And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age…

Famine impoverished the life of Naomi, an Israelite. But it was the deaths of her husband and two sons that left her completely destitute. (Ruth 1:1–5) Or so she thought, until Boaz, who was a wealthy and close relative, entered her life.

As her kinsman-redeemer, Boaz married Ruth, Naomi’s widowed daughter-in-law. And through that union, Naomi had a grandson. The birth of her grandson gave her a new lease of life, causing the womenfolk in her village to declare that the restorer of life and the nourisher of her old age had come into her life. (Ruth 4:14–16)

Boaz is a picture of Jesus, our kinsman-redeemer. Jesus became our kinsman when He was born into this world as one like us. And He became our Redeemer when He paid with His life and blood at the cross to redeem us.

Jesus gave Himself to us as our restorer of life and nourisher of our old age. When the restorer of life is in our lives, what we have lost can be restored. (Joel 2:25−26) And with the nourisher of our old age in us, our bodies can be gloriously renewed even though we advance in our years.

That is why when Moses died at the age of 120, his eyes were not dim and his natural vigor was not diminished. (Deuteronomy 34:7) Caleb, at 85 years old, could still drive out the giants from the land. God had literally nourished his body and made it strong for war. (Joshua 14:11) Sarah was certainly rejuvenated in her old age by God for she was still desirable to a king at the age of 90. (Genesis 20:1–2) God even renewed her womb. She received strength to conceive seed (Hebrews 11:11), giving birth to Isaac in her old age.

Beloved, God is outside of time and your faith in Him brings you into this timeless zone. There, what the years have stolen will be restored. And even as your years increase, you will not grow weak and weary because the restorer of life and nourisher of your old age is in you!

Another Look at the Budwig Protocol

The Budwig Protocol was developed by German researcher and medical practitioner, Dr Johanna Budwig as she built on the work of nobel winner Dr. Otto Warburg.

Dr. Johanna Budwig was one of Germany’s top biochemists as well one of the best cancer researchers throughout all of Europe. Born in 1908 and lived to be 95. She has been nominated seven times for the Nobel Prize. Dr. Budwig is also a published author, holds a Ph.D. in Natural Science, a medical practitioner degree, and is one of the greatest authorities on diet and its relation to health and well-being. She is still well respected in many medical circles.

Dr. Budwig’s work focused on fatty acids as she searched for what Warburg did not live long enough to find out so that his discoveries could be applied in health restoration and disease prevention.    It is critical to know the difference between “good” and “bad” fats and Budwig’s literature is referenced in nearly resource I found.  Society is becoming more familiar with unusual sounding terms like “hydrogenated” and “polyunsaturated,” and many of us could probably even give a reasonable definition of an “essential fatty acid.”  These are “essential” because they must be acquired through foods (“Essentials” include omega 3 and 6 fatty acids should be in approximately a 50/50 ratio.)

Decades ago Dr. Budwig lectured on the connection between “bad” fats like hydrogenated margarines and illness as well as the importance of essential fatty acids. In a speech that she delivered on November 2, 1959 in Zurich, Switzerland, Dr. Budwig said, “Without these fatty acids, the respiratory enzymes cannot function and the person suffocates, even when he is given oxygen-rich air. A deficiency in these highly unsaturated fatty-acids impairs many vital functions. First of all, it decreases the person’s supply of available oxygen. We cannot survive without air and food; nor can we survive without these fatty acids. That has been proven long ago.

Clearly, Dr. Budwig understood the connection between diet and health. She recognized that with the advent and popularity of hydrogenated and overprocessed oils came an increase in the rates of several serious illnesses. She realized that the way foods are now processed eliminates virtually all of the essential fatty acids. So, Dr. Budwig decided to focus her career on finding the dietary solution or cure to the list of diseases that affect so many people in the world.”

Dr. Budwig has spent a lot of time in her career studying the blood of cancer patients. In fact, one of her observations came about after 30 years of painstaking research. Dr. Budwig noticed that people who were seriously ill with cancer always had low levels of two specific substances in their blood: phosphatides and lipoproteins. She also observed that in healthy, cancer-free people, these two compounds were present in normal amounts that were sufficient for good health.

Additionally, Dr. Budwig found that cancer patients typically had an odd greenish-yellow substance in their blood, instead of normal amounts of hemoglobin. She realized that this discovery undoubtedly explained why cancer patients are so often weak and suffering from anemia. Dr. Budwig also discovered that in general, blood that comes from a healthy person contains far greater levels of Omega 3 essential fatty acids than blood samples taken from someone who is ill.

From her research, Dr. Budwig realized that her theories connecting diet and health were absolutely correct. She theorized that if just the right combination of nutrients were introduced to cancer patients, perhaps the unusual greenish-yellow gunk would go away and healthy red blood cells would return. She began to test her hypothesis on cancer patients, involving a combination of organic flaxseed oil and quark, a dairy product common in Germany that is very similar to cottage cheese.”(source www.bionatures.com )

Dr. Budwig chose organic flaxseed oil as her primary source of omega 3 fatty acids because it is the richest source and is easily assimilated and well-tolerated by most people. She opted to mix the oil with quark (a german cottage cheese) because of its high levels of sulfurated protein (cottage cheese contains similar amounts, as does yogurt). She knew from her research that this type of healthy oil requires a sulfurated protein in order for it to be utilized in the body. Specifically, when the protein combined with the oil, Dr. Budwig discovered that the flaxseed oil would actually become water soluble, meaning that it would be absorbed more easily. Taking flaxseed oil without the sulfurated protein found in quark, cottage cheese or yogurt is not inherently harmful, but in order to achieve results like Dr. Budwig a combination of the oil and protein is necessary.

Amazingly, Dr. Budwig found that after only three short months on her flaxseed oil-quark combination, cancer patients began to improve. Tumors shrunk in size, patients’ strength returned, and further blood analysis showed that the infamous greenish-yellow substance did indeed go away. Phosphatide and lipoprotein levels returned to normal, and red blood cell amounts were once again at healthy amounts. She was even able to help the patients whose doctors had told to “go home and die.” Clearly, Dr. Budwig had hit on something big in the world of cancer research!

In fact, after over 10 years of clinical research, Dr. Budwig’s combination of 2 tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil combined with one quarter cup of cottage cheese has been used successfully in Europe to treat a variety of diseases in addition to cancer, including arteriosclerosis, eczema, stomach and intestinal disorders, arthritis, and strokes.

After reading about Dr. Budwig’s numerous successes with flaxseed oil, many other scientists became interested in studying its many benefits. A great number of studies have looked at flaxseed oil’s ability to help with a variety of serious diseases and health conditions, and the results have been impressive. In fact, it is difficult to state a reason not to supplement with flaxseed oil.

WWW.Barleans.com also offers their own oil for sale and discounts for cancer patients using Budwig Protocol. Barleans also sells wonderful organic coconut oil (I use it for butter).  You can order from Barleans, bionatures, or Amazon.  It must be kept cold and in the dark opaque container it is sold in.  It can be frozen.

Parts of this article originally appeared on  www.bionatures.com who is a major supplier of Barleans Cold Pressed organic flax seed oil. This product is pressed to order and shipped immediately in dark brown bottles. It can be frozen to keep on hand. It is the mainstay of the Budwig Flaxoil/Cottage Cheese protocol. We make a smoothie of kefir (cultured milk) and this flax oil every morning.  I add berries (fresh or frozen) and a few drops of Stevia herbal sweetener.  Delicious and “essential” for health.
